Hunger-Proteste gegen steigende Lebensmittelpreise

Hunger-Proteste auf Haiti

„Die Demonstrationen begannen am Donnerstag, den 3. April in Le Cayes. Sie richteten sich gegen die steigenden Lebensmittelpreise und breiteten sich über Haiti aus - bis nach Petit-Goagve, Gonaives und Aquin. Am 7. April erreichten sie auch die Hauptstadt Port-au-Prince. Seit vielen Monaten war es zu einem Anstieg der Preise für Grundnahrungsmittel gekommen. Für die Armen war Nahrung zunehmend unerschwinglich geworden. Auf den Straßen wurden Reifen in Brand gesteckt und zu Barrikaden geschichtet. So legte man den Verkehr tagelang lahm…“ Artikel von Jeb Sprague im ZNet vom 26.04.2008 //zmag.de/artikel/hunger-proteste-auf-haiti

Tote bei Protest gegen Teuerung

Milizen der islamischen Räte, Soldaten der US-gestützten äthiopischen Armee - und schiesswütige Polizei: Menschen, die in Somalia einfach nur leben wollen, stehen unter drei Feuern. Am vergangenen Montag hatte die Polizei das Feuer auf ungefähr 20.000 Menschen in Mogadischu eröffnet, die trotz der Kriegssituation (erst am Tag zuvor hatten rund 1.000 Menschen eines Stadtteils gegen einen US-Raketenangriff protestiert, dem neben einem "Terroristenführer" weitere 10 Anwohner zum opfer gefallen waren) gegen die rasante Teuerung protestiert hatten und gegen die - somalische aktuelle Spezialität - zunehmende Praxis der Händler, nur noch US-Dollars anzunehmen. Bei Nahrungsmittelpreisen die in dem krisengeschüttelten Land besonders explodiert sind: Mindestens um 110% im letzten Jahr.

Proteststreik der Hafenarbeiter gegen den Irakkrieg am 1.Mai 2008

Der Streik an der US-Westküste gegen den Krieg - Erste Bilanz

„Am 1. Mai organisierte die International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU – Hafenarbeitergewerkschaft) eine Arbeitsniederlegung gegen die Kriege im Irak und Afghanistan und für den sofortigen Abzug der Besatzungstruppen. Nach Angaben der ILWU beteiligten sich rund 25.000 Arbeiter an dem Streik. 29 Häfen der Westküste – von San Diego in Südkalifornien bis Seattle im US-Staat Washington – waren betroffen. Allein Los Angeles und das benachbarte Long Beach sind Umschlagplätze für 10.000 Container pro Schicht…“ Eine erste Bilanz des Streiks (pdf) //www.labournet.de/internationales/usa/1mai08_bilanz.pdf

Es gab mehr al hundert Teilnehmer, obwohl die Versammlung regelrecht verbarrikadiert in engem Raum von „Sicherheitsleute“ der Universität verstärkt durch Polizisten (sowohl in Zivil als auch in Uniform) wurde.

Put Masts on Hold

The Evening News has thrust the issue of mobile phone masts firmly into the public spotlight since 2000.

It has raised public awareness of the possible health risks the structures pose and fought against them being installed near homes and schools until it is proved they are safe.

David Bradford, chair of the planning committee at Norwich City Council, said of our campaign: “Although our hands are often tied by legislation, we do always try to take into account people's opinions when deciding whether to approve an application, and the Evening News has been a great support with that, it's been very useful to have their input.”

Some of the masts the Evening News campaign has helped to prevent being built include:

February 2007 - Colman Road, Norwich: Norwich City Council turned down plans for an 11.8m T-Mobile mast close to St Anne's Church.

March 2007 - Aylsham Road, Norwich: A campaign and 600 signature petition to stop a T-Mobile phone mast from being installed near a popular bikers' pub and sheltered housing ensures plans were rejected.

June 2007 - Broadland District Councillors rejected an application from T-mobile to build a 12m mast near the Blue Boar pub in Wroxham Road.

The Clinton credit crisis

Liberty For All
by Jessica Peck Corry

05/01/08

It must be nice to live in Hillary Clinton’s world. Someone else always pays the bills. But as campaign vendors — including health insurance companies — now complain that she is stiffing them, we are left to wonder how she will handle an American economy increasingly troubled by unpaid public and private debts...

McCain’s delusional tax plan

The American Prospect
by Robert Gordon & James Kvaal

05/02/08

America’s tax code needs a serious overhaul. The last clean-up was in 1986, when Ronald Reagan turned away from his tax-slashing past to partner with a Democratic Congress and close loopholes, change rates, and broaden the tax base. Over the intervening decades, lobbyists have left their Gucci footprints all over the code, and our system is a bigger mess than ever — one that should give both Democrats and Republicans pause. For instance, America taxes corporations at the second-highest rate in the industrialized world but collects the fourth-lowest amount of corporate tax revenue. Why? Loopholes, special deductions, tax credits, subsidies, and shelters. Politically influential industries get special deals, distorting investment decisions and forcing overall tax rates higher than they need to be...

High gas prices: Fuel for thought

Fox News/Heritage
by Ben Lieberman

05/02/08

When it comes to soaring gasoline prices, we need a federal government that does less. Less contributing to the problem, that is. As lawmakers and presidential candidates offer a number of proposals to lower pump prices, they should keep in mind that past laws and regulations have made matters worse. Washington ought to eliminate these mistakes rather than repeat them. We need fewer restrictions on domestic oil drilling. … The only reason not to drill is the environmental concerns. But improvements in technology have greatly reduced the above-ground footprint and the risk of offshore spills. Any new drilling would be subject to the world’s strictest standards. … We also need less regulatory red tape affecting refineries and gasoline supplies...

The lost first amendment

CounterPunch

Since the administration of Ronald Reagan, the pervasiveness of the religious wing of the political Right has increased geometrically. George W. Bush solidified the gains of the purveyors of religious intolerance in both 2000 and 2004! The working environment I face in South Florida is a direct result of the destruction of the wall between church and state in the U.S...

Bush: Hiding Facts to Protect Myths

Common Dreams
by Christopher Brauchli

Hiding truth

05/04/08

The wonderful thing about having George Bush as president is that a commentator can write about the same subject repeatedly and it will always be timely and fresh. That is because when George Bush finds a bad thing to do, he does it repeatedly because he’s too sure of his own good judgment to notice that it’s a bad thing. One of his favorite things is hiding facts to protect myths. One of his favorite myths is that the war in Iraq is going swimmingly. Among one of many ways the myth is perpetuated is by not letting journalists photograph service personnel being brought home in coffins as they arrive at Andrews Air Force Base. Another, we have now learned, is not letting members of the press get near burial services taking place at Arlington National Cemetery...

Mary Tillman’s book details her fight for facts in son’s death

Arizona Republic

05/04/08

A book is hardly needed to spread the story of Pat Tillman. The nation and world have been inundated with four years of reports on his life and death, his gridiron glories, indomitable spirit, military service and betrayal. We know the undersized overachiever became an All-Pro player with the Arizona Cardinals, then gave up a multimillion-dollar contract to serve his country after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. We know that Tillman was killed by fellow soldiers on an Army Ranger mission in Afghanistan, an event that was the subject of six investigations. Amid millions of written words, Americans might wonder: What more is there to tell? Yet Mary Tillman, who is to appear tonight on 60 Minutes, has written 330 additional pages. The book, Boots on the Ground by Dusk: My Tribute to Pat Tillman, with journalist Narda Zacchino, describes a family’s behind-the-scenes quest for truth spliced with flashbacks about the soldier’s life and exploits...

Self-regulation in the corporate state: The BP spill

Foundation for Economic Education
by Sheldon Richman

05/14/10

With some 7,000 barrels of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico each day from BP’s exploded Deepwater Horizon well, offshore drilling and oil-industry regulation have returned to the front pages. The familiar old trap is set: Do you want unfettered markets and oil spills or government regulation and safety?

Iraq caught between U.S. and Iran

Christian Science Monitor

05/05/08

Iran says it will back Iraq in its ongoing fight against its Shiite militias. That pledge came after a delegation from Iraq’s ruling Shiite bloc pressed its neighbor on what it called fresh ‘evidence’ it was arming and training militants. The five-member group sent by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki returned to Baghdad Saturday, saying it had received a ‘positive’ response after confronting officials with US and Iraqi intelligence on Iranian weapons caches that US officials say included weaponry manufactured in 2008. ‘The delegation saw a positive stance from the brothers in Iran to support the government’s efforts in extending the sovereignty of the state and to fight outlaws,’ Iraq’s deputy parliament speaker Khalid al-Attiya, who visited Iran, said Saturday...

Mobile towers cut down to size

JAYANTA BASU

Cellphone service providers can no longer install transmitters on any vacant terrace of their choice.

Deluged by complaints about cellphone towers being indiscriminately installed atop buildings in every neighbourhood, the environment department has come up with a set of guidelines for service providers.

The guidelines have been sent to cellphone companies operating across the state. The Union health ministry had issued a similar set of guidelines five years ago, which the companies chose to ignore.

“We have been receiving complaints about cellphone towers for a long time. The guidelines were prepared after we came across studies which say that radiation from these towers affects health,” environment secretary M.L. Meena said.
